I am replacing the window wells at a customer’s home.  He disliked the original ones, which had become old and rusted.  He felt that they detracted from his property.

Naturally, the first step in replacing a window well is removing the old one.  This can be done manually, but it is a tremendous amount of work.  In this case that would have to be multiplied by three, as that was the number of windows wells that were being changed out.

A faster and easier method is to combine manual labor with an excavator.  If done only manually the job would take 4-5 hours for each window well.  However, with the assistance of the excavator, each well can be replaced in about 1 hour.

If you have any remodeling or reconstruction needs, please feel free to give me a call for a free estimate.
